Global International Worldwide, Intl., a student-run organization on campus, will hold its “Kazoo It! 2” event Saturday in front of Wilson Library from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The event will feature 200 free kazoos, some impromptu conducting and a spontaneous parade around the quad.
“The purpose of ‘Kazoo It!’ is to bring the music back to the people,” GIWI Events Coordinator Elinor Walker said. “Having people take control of their own lives, play some kazoos, cause some disruption in the middle of campus — it is like a peaceful protest of some sorts.”
Sophomores and GIWI co-founders Quincy Godwin and Ethan Baechtold hosted this event last year. Baechtold said the crowd started out small but grew quickly as the kazooing and dancing commenced.
The community organization was founded over a year ago by Godwin and Baechtold as first-years after spontaneously creating the idea for “Kazoo It!”
And the organization grew from there.
